The May issue of Canadian House & Home is one of my all-time favourite issues. This is due mainly because of the feature of Vancouver designer April Tidey's loft and cottage (some photos of which are below). They are filled with such creative and eclectic ideas, and such a variety of different styles. This appears to be her signature look, the mix of ornate antiques, mid century modern furnishings and bold accessories. I LOVE that, because it creates such intriguing spaces where you're bound to find something eye-catching at every turn.
The photography below is that of Heather Ross, a multi-talented Vancouverite who not only takes fabulous photos but has a boutique of antique finds, accessories, textiles, her photography etc. and also creates stunning paintings that she sells in her shop. Do go have a looksie here.
Feel like a short break? Want to join me in Milan? Should we take these three private luxury apartments, each with their own separate entrance right in the heart of Milan. Like an ode to 20th century design 3 Rooms mixes vintage classics with art and high design. I wonder if we can book for fashion week? Better still when are the sales? Images from here.
Everything Scandinavian is not always white. Things are brooding in the state of Denmark. No not really but stylist Pernille Vest shows that she's not a one trick pony. Love the dark sophisticated take on classic Scandinavian design (with just enough white thrown in to keep us all happy). Beautiful work!
This post was the result of this email from Mel: "I have recently purchased a sewing machine to get back into that whole game and am looking for inspiration on how to set up a little designated sewing space. I live in inner-city Sydney so space is not my friend, however for the time being I can carve out a little space in a spare/studio/play room before baby number three arrives in December."
